Touring The Cities In Spain…

November 15, 2014

Friday: I slept in this morning (until 7:30) and then went out for a 37:56.56 minute run. I was planning on getting 5 miles in… Another beautiful morning!

IMG_4952-0.JPG Today we went to the oldest European city, Cadiz, Spain. It was beautiful and we had a blast…




IMG_4961.JPG Some things we laughed so hard… One is my little sister just peeing anywhere and everywhere!!! Another is all the people posing everywhere, cats everywhere with random people feeding all the strays…

IMG_4960.JPG We headed down to the beach just a block away from Keri’s house. We found so many shells!!! It was nice to walk around in the sand with no shoes on…

IMG_4962.JPG We did movie night with the kids…

Saturday: All week long it has been so hard for me to get out and go running but once I get going it ends up being very pleasant. Today was more of a struggle. I do have to admit that the 2:20.35 minute run went by faster than I thought it would. It was still a struggle to be somewhere where I had to stay somewhat close to my sisters house for fear of getting lost. So the “20” miles (which I hope I ran 20 miles in that time) that I ran was all near my sister’s house. It was a beautiful morning, though!

IMG_5082.JPG I was so happy to see this place!!! Yes it is my sister’s house…

IMG_4970.JPG Soon after getting back we all left for my nephew’s soccer game and then to my nieces horse lessons…

IMG_5084-2.JPG Parking is crazy here! Try to get out of this one… Corom would love it! Good thing Steve was driving… He did say this was very common and that is what bumpers are made for…

IMG_5085.JPG We did walk around the city of Rota… Another beautiful city in Spain!

IMG_5083.JPG Steve was able to get us on the U.S. Military Base. We drove around for most of it but I loved it!!! It really was a neat experience to see where he works and to see a lot of the different auxiliaries. Our military is simply amazing!!! There were some things we couldn’t take pictures of.


IMG_5086.JPG We then headed to Arcos de la Frontera. Soo pretty!!! Loved this little city!


IMG_5089.JPG We ran into a young gentlemen there with owls and hawks that we were able hold…


IMG_5090.JPG On our way home, Steve backed into a pole and Keri got our car load lost… We took quit the 45 minute detour. πŸ™‚ We even got off the off ramp and began to get on an on ramp… She pulled a grandpa and put it in reverse back down the on ramp… It’s all good, though… We made it home! πŸ™‚

IMG_5093.JPG Trina, Steve & the kids realized they didn’t have a way in to the house. They sat outside waiting for us (missy, Keri, my mom and I) to get home. After about 40 minutes of waiting, Steve realized the house keys were in his car the whole time… Stinks to be them! πŸ˜‰ The kids ate s’mores and after they were done, us adults went out to dinner (at 9:30 p.m…. So late here!). The bottom picture was an appetizer we had. πŸ™‚
